and mitt romney both say they are not for leg legalising marijuana. >> i spoke to barney frank. i said why do you care so much? >> i believe in personal freedom and liberty. i believe the efforts to shut down internet gamble. i think it contributes to a good deal of the sense of unfairness of young people that are told they shouldn't do this but then see older people engaging in things that have a greater impact on people. and then i think important at the federal level that means t cutting military spending and at the state level that means not doing as much as -- people that smoke marijuana. one of the best things we can do to reduce state expenditures is to stop going after people who use marijuana. >> you could also make money on it. very good point. the analogy is prohibition. we could tax it. again, it is the expensive. it is not family done. if you look at the arrests for marijuana. they come from minority groups and there are highly educated and upper income white kids that smoke it and the big problem in new york. it adds a degree of social disorganization and it is an impri imp

's going to talk about mitt romney. both sides raising those expectations. governor romney making it clear that during the debate wednesday in denver he will aggressively defend his record and beat back any miss characte characterizations from president obama that come his way. mr. romney has to have a big, good night on wednesday and definitely they are trying to plan, bill at this point, he's going to try to have one. bill: the billboard shows results from pennsylvania from 2008. this was a state that was heavily targeted by both parties. in 2008 pennsylvania went blue, it went democrat and barack obama won the state by 11 points over senator mccain 55-44%. on the map behind me senator mccain's counties are in red, barack obama's counties are in blue. you see where senator mccain did so well in the countryside. here in pittsburgh, ala againee county is where barack obama one. you go over to the southeastern part of the state and look how democratic this went. this is chester k-pt, delaware county right here where mitt romney is today. an easy winner. all these areas around philadelphia,
, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the w begins next tuesday. now, today the president was again selling his policies and his record in a state he says has benefitted from the auto bailout. he talked about the thousands of jobs created but also hit china and went after his gop opponent. >> he's been talking tough on china. he says he's going to take the fight to them. he's going to go after these cheaters. and i've got to admit, that message is better tha
both mitt romney and president obama haveeen campaigning i the same battlegroun state. this time it's virginia where both men targeted the same group of voters. let's walk over to cnn's naon political correspondent jim acosta who's been out on the campaign trail wahingt' going . another dramatic da. virginia, virginia, virginia. pretty important place. >> that's right. a rare visit to washington for me. but it's good to be home, wolf. all politics is local. so it was no surprise to hear both candidates hit on national security themes today in their speeches in virginia. but the state is much bigger than that. it's really a republican firewall for mitt romney. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president
the candidates responded. maybe it was that infamous 47% remark that mitt romney had. maybe one or both of the campaigns has some dirty trick in their pocket that they're going to be ready to get out there at the 11th hour. but you know what? if we knew, it wouldn't be called an october surprise now, would it? >> that's very true. you've got that right. dana bash, that was a great story. thank you so much. >> thanks, carol. >>> cnn's live debate coverage begins tomorrow night at 7:00 eastern. >>> nfl legend barry sanders, there he is. i'm so excited, barry, that you're here. we'll talk next.

minorities and large universities. ohio has a huge middle class and they are the clear target for both romney and obama. we'll report later tonight with bret and special report. megyn, back to you. megyn: now to the fallout on the story breaking yesterday. the senate's highest-ranking democrat attacking governor romney on their shared mormon faith. other mormons are lark out at senate majority harry reid suggesting that the governor sullied his faith. utah congressman jason chaffetz is a member of the church of the latter day saints. >> that the kind of gutter politics people abhor. for the majority leader of the united states senate to make it so personal and throw the religion under the bus, it's inappropriate. there is no room for it. it should be called out and it was a shameful embarrassment. megyn: we had frank luntz on and he did think this is an effort to put mormonism front and center in this race to scare people who don't understand the religion or gin up prejudice. as a mormon your thoughts on that. >> i have been proud of the electorate. it hasn't been front and center. but when y

what mitt romney may be throwing his way. the bottom line, though, as you pointed out, both campaigns really trying to lower expectations. you hear aides with the campaign saying that the president has not had a lot of time to practice as opposed to mitt romney who went through the primary season and has a lot of experience. and the president himself last night in a grass roots event in las vegas also started playing a little bit of that game. take a listen. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you are! >> i don't know about that, you know. who's going to put the most points on the board. >> you are! >> no, no. governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> the president will be spending a couple of days out in nevada preparing for the big debates. john kerry, by the way, will be playing the role of mitt romney. he's someone who has a lot of experience debating but also knows mitt romney very well as he comes from massachusetts. now, the big issue, though, is who will both of these candidates be able to sway in the d
the presidential election. the race still too close to call. and both mitt romney and barack obama will be virtually invisible today. why, you ask? well, they're hunkering town for wednesday's debate and a chance to deliver that made for tv moment that will have us all talking. after all, debate zingers are an american tradition. >> i'm counting on you. i'm counting on the fact that when the american people focus and push aside all the noise and all the nonsense and they remember the fact that all of us, whatever success we've achieved, we've achieved because we worked together. because we made sure everybody -- >> here you go again. >> i want you to know that also i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> those are the zingers we were talking about. that first obama shot, that was a mistake. but it was a very rousing speech, right? if you want another measure o
're awaiting dueling speeches today from republican presidential nominee mitt romney and president obama. both candidates campaigning across the battleground state of virginia. governor romney in springfield, mr. obama in virginia beach. it is the third time in a week they are both hitting the same stage. shane deapril is the editor of campaigns and elections magazine. democrats are pretty confident about virginia this time. should they be, shane? >> we've seen some dueling polls out of virginia. there are some that show the president with a clear lead. some show the contest quite a bit tighter. but i think what you're seeing with amount of time both campaigns are spending in virginia it is such a key state when it comes to the electoral college calculation for both campaigns. essentially in my sort of electoral college predictor i have president obama at 237 electoral votes right now. so that means the three really big swing states, ohio, virginia, and florida, they could be really killers for mitt romney if he can't find a way to wrestle two of those away from president obama. if the preside
in the cut line that both romney and president obama addressed the conference, but avoided directly attacking each other. more from the papers and the speeches, but we want to hear from you now. angelica, republican line. caller: i am in full support of president obama. i like the way he handles foreign policy, he is measured and careful of what he says. when i look at mr. romney, i am so sick and tired of the fear and warmongering and am afraid that he would start another military conflict in the middle east. as a voter, on that topic alone, president obama has my vote, because i do not believe that we and the world can afford another military conflict on this planet. thank you for allowing me to talk this morning. have a good day. host: thank you for your comments this morning. round rock, texas. caller: i agree with the republican that just called in, i also support the president as far as foreign affairs go. mr. romney used to belong to a chinese organization, it was an oil conglomerate. they were supporting iran. in 2011, mr. romney separated himself from these chinese oil conglomerate.
and romney campaign has been both in word and deed really trying to step it up, recognizing how much is riding on the debates. >>gregg: thanking from boston, carl cameron. >>heather: a hero's welcome at ground zero for a group of brave americans, including war veterans. it is the warrior bicycle ride, rolling in to new york city today, they have been riding across the country for the last nine days. we have followed them 3,200 miles from california. the team raised awareness and money to help the children of fallen u.s. vet whose died serving their country. >>gregg: also in new york city today, more than 10,000 runners honoring the first responders who died in the september 11th attack, retracing the steps of a firefighter who had 60 pounds of gear strapped to his back he ranked through the brooklyn tunnel into manhattan to help the victims at ground zero. that is where he also lost his life. here is former new york city mayor giuliani. >> this memorizes the firefighter coming through the tunnel on september 11th with the gear, running to the fire, saving people. he lost his life. hi
prepare for their first debate. both sides trying to lower expectations. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> flashpoint libya, the white house on the defensive after reports of both security and intelligence nurse in benghazi before that terror attack. >> standing up, sitting down. >> which ever one you like. >> there you go. >> do whatever they tell us. >> the white house line is you heard the president say, osama bin laden is dead, al qaeda is done, everything is fine in the middle east. this, obviously, contradicts -- ther series of events contradicts that campaign slogan. so, the fact is, that this was clearly an act of terror committed by people who were pretty well trained jihadists. >> more carnage in afghanistan. the taliban take responsibility for a suicide attack that killed 14 today including three americans. we are deployed

about the numbers. mitt romney is working to regain ground. barack obama is pouring millions of dollars into ads to steal the deal. voters are heading to the polls in two dozen states and both sides are bracing for the unexpected, especially when it comes to the economy. and that's with less than six weeks left. if the election were held today, what would we expect, jeff? >> if the election would be held today and it is, it is a question that governor romney's campaign dismissed saying it is not being held today. i was in iowa yesterday, thousands of people have voted in almost at the end of this month, 30 states will have voted. if the election was today, president obama has command. in battleground states from nevada, up to new hampshire and down to florida in nine battle ground states, the president is in command of this race and that's not an assessment of the polls, although he has an advantage in the polls but republicans in the romney campaign as well. that doesn't mean this race is over. there are a lot of things can happen. the debate next week. there is a recognition inside th
, because we keep talking about romney, what do both of them need to do. >> one point, the debate is the be all and end all, there is not universal consensus there has to be a clear, you know, resounding victory for romney. he has to do well, no doubt but, the benchmark, the debate, the debate, falls into the media mean of romney has to perform and if he doesn't it is an excuse of another round of in my mind disgustingly bias pieces against mitt romney and i believe bill is exactly right. when barack obama was challenged in that univision interview, last week, by hojorge ramos, he looks uncomfortable when he's confronted with facts and simply worded question, when mitt romney reminds people, we have 11.7 unemployment, not 8.1%, america's best days have to be in front of her, i think he wins, not by having a, quote, human moment. i think that is a fool's earring but having a moment of real leadership and maturity. contrasted with a celebrity president who is comfortable with ellen or any of these late night hosts, than he is talking to the families of these insider attacks. i think
the debate and of course, the election. both president obama and governor romney had seasoned debaters and experts say neither are prone to making major gaffes. but if there is one thing that history has taught us, when it comes to presidential debates, expect the unexpected. joining us now to talk about the moments and debate magic yet to come, republican consultant romney 2008 campaign advisor, alex castellanos and donna brazile. a lot of folks are saying these debates are do or die for romney. donna, do you agree? >> absolutely. first impression is very, very important. mitt romney had several opportunities to change the trajectory of the campaign, his selection of a running mate, paul ryan, got a small bounce. the convention speech didn't get any bounce, and now the first debate. this is like the first night on broadway. there will be more voters tuning in, they will be looking at his performance and if he comes across as somebody who is credible, who is up to the task, he might get another bounce out of it. >> aren't undecided voters the least likely to tune into the debates? gall
demeanor. so it's a big night for both president obama as well as governor romney. >> did you hear him sigh? were you backstage like stop sighing? >> i heard it the first time. by the third time i pretended not to listen. but more importantly, once they put up that split screen, then you looked at he was rolling his eyes and of course, it was not a pretty moment. but we came back in the second debate. >> that's when the democrats started sighing, too, right after al gore. mitt romney has to demonstrate he's changed. there are a lot of voters in this country who are unsatisfied with barack obama. they think we could do better. they don't know that mitt romney is that change. neither of these guys has told us what the next four years could be like because of the changes they would bring. >> and that's i think another challenge that mitt romney has on wednesday night. that is to finally lay out some plans. he's been talking a lot about i have solutions, i know how to get the economy moving, but he really hasn't given us a concrete beyond the 59 points, the five points -- >> neither has our pre
